Treatment for anal cancer

There are many different types of treatment for anal cancer. Your treatment will depend on you and your cancer.

Your treatment will depend on the type of anal cancer you have.

Treatments may include:

  • Surgery to remove the tumour – most suitable for early-stage anal cancer
  • Radical surgery – which involves removing the anal canal, rectum and regional lymph nodes
  • Chemotherapy – can be used alone or together with radiation therapy to treat anal cancer
  • Radiation therapy – uses radiation to directly target and destroy cancer cells
